Erika’s Lighthouse Team Resilience has been running to support Erika’s Lighthouse mission for 10 years. We’ve grown from just one local runner to having 122 Marathon participants in 2024! 

Team Resilience is a group of amazing individuals who are dedicated to helping further the mission of Erika’s Lighthouse. Our team is comprised of so many people who connect with the mission and want to help Get Depression Out of the Dark, including educators, parents, survivors of suicide loss, and those who wish they had access to our programs as students. With each year, there are more incredible stories and connections to our mission as runners push themselves physically, mentally, and philanthropically as a part of Team Resilience. 

Registration is open for Team Resilience 2024, and training programs are starting now! Join us for one of our signature races, and challenge yourself as you run to bring needed mental health education programs to schools nationwide. When you sign up for the Chicago or LA marathon with Team Resilience, you gain guaranteed entry, along with added perks.
